Coco, is my 6 year old yorkie. She is my sweet baby and has brought so much joy to my life from the moment I got her. We crossed paths several years ago when I ran into a family that no longer wanted her. Once she greeted me with her sweet kisses it was love at first sight and I had to have her! Now she is my world. The vet told me when she was only about 2 that she had bad knees and was most likely suffering from luxating patella, a knee condition common in small breeds that causes the knee caps to pop out of place. It didn't start really affecting her quality of life until about a year ago and recently she has just gone down hill. She loves to play and go to the park but now she is always limping and seems to be in pain so much that she can do little but lay around. After her vet visit I was informed that she not only needs correctional surgery for the knee caps, but she also has a torn ACL due to the disruption that the luxating patella has caused in both knees. In addiiton to that, she is developing arthritis in both legs which is irreversible but can be stooped from getting worse. Even though she may need surgery in both knees eventually, the vet recommended an orthopedic surgery for one (the right knee which has the torn ACL) that will fix it and keep it from popping out of place with pins and plates while helping repair the ACL. The surgery is a little over $2000 and would change Coco's life to make her be mostly pain free and playful again. Because I am paying my way through college I have little extra money these days but I just can't bare seeing her like this. Coco and I need all the extra help we can get. I hope that with some prayers, donations, and support I can have my Coco healthy and playful again. Thank you all!
